Analysis of the U.S. 95 Arterial
Step 1. Setup
We now turn to a view of the U.S. 95 arterial, of which the Styner-Lauder Avenue intersection is one part. You can review the physical
layout of the intersection in Exhibit
1-6. On the
northern end is the intersection of U.S. 95 and State Highway 8.
Sweet Avenue intersection is located 560 feet to the south of the State
Highway 8 intersection. It handles about 1,600 vehicles during a
typical afternoon peak hour.
Styner-Lauder Avenue is located 1,070 feet south of
Sweet Avenue, while the Palouse River Drive intersection is located 2,410
feet further south. The average speed on U.S. 95 is 35 miles per hour.

data are required for the analysis? Take a few minutes to consider
these questions. When you are ready, proceed to the next page.
